President Donald Trump

President Trump will tout the Republican tax cuts at a Blue Ash manufacturing company Monday afternoon.

The president will be going to Sheffer Corp., a company which makes industrial cylinders.

Last month, after Trump signed the tax reform bill into law, Sheffer management gave its employees $1,000 bonuses, according to U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, who visited the plant in early January.

Portman's spokeswoman said the senator will accompany Trump to Sheffer on Monday.

Ohio Public Radio reports that gubernatorial candidate Mary Taylor and her running mate, Nathan Estruth, will also attend the president's event.

The White House has yet to release details on the visit.

It will Trump's second visit to Cincinnati as president.

In June 2017, he went to an East End marina in Cincinnati and made a speech on repairing the nation's aging infrastructure.

A native of Dayton, Ohio, Wilkinson has covered every Ohio governor’s race since 1974 as well as 12 presidential nominating conventions. His streak continued by covering both the 2012 Republican and Democratic conventions for 91.7 WVXU. Along with politics, Wilkinson also covered the 2001 Cincinnati race riots; the Lucasville Prison riot in 1993; the Air Canada plane crash at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in 1983; and the 1997 Ohio River flooding. The Cincinnati Reds are his passion. "I've been listening to WVXU and public radio for many years, and I couldn't be more pleased at the opportunity to be part of it,” he says.
